The Intergalatic Rescue Mission by Sunflash the Mace to the Planet Blurple

A large-scale puppet show created in just 5 days, directed by Jenny Ellis, in collaboration with choreographer Aleksandra Mirjana Crossan. The show was written, designed, made and performed by over 40 children, their parents and the broader community of Bruny Island, Tasmania. Sunflash the Mace, a badger, needed to rescue her friend, a guinea pig named Amy Bird who was captured by the lonely, friendless, alien Spike and taken to the Planet Blurple. Sunflash, with the help of Dooli Dooli, Nessy bird and other Blurplian aliens, found her way through the Purple Forest to a Labrynth, which was guarded by a banana ghost, and rescued Amy Bird.
